About Margaret, Founder of Yummy Mummy Fitness
I’m Margaret, Founder of Yummy Mummy Fitness.
I have two daughters, 13 months apart, Harper 6 years old and Scarlett 7 years old.
I split from the girls’ dad when they were only young and was a single mum for a while until I met my fiancé Kayla. We’ve been together for 4 years.
I started YMF when I was mid-way through my pregnancy with Harper in 2011 (not sure what I was thinking!).
I had been a Personal Trainer for many years before starting YMF, but after becoming a mum, everything changed, and I had to find a way to make my career work with motherhood.
I also wanted to create a support network for myself, so training mums was ideal for me, for both my work life and personal life!
YMF started out with 1 class per week and there were 3 mums at the very first class.
Fast forward 7 years and we now run classes 6 days per week at 2 locations on the Gold Coast with anywhere up to 18 mums in a class.
The goals of YMF have always remained the same – to motivate mums to lead a healthy and active lifestyle through our unique health and fitness program.
But I knew YMF couldn’t just be like every other fitness group. I wanted YMF to be built on a foundation of community. A community of like-minded mums who support, motivate, encourage, inspire, and understand each other.
We train together, we achieve our goals together, we do things we never thought possible, we laugh together, we have drunken nights out together, and we offer a helping hand to each other during this challenging motherhood journey.
We get mums because we are mums ourselves and we face the same challenges.
But we also know what mums are capable of and don’t put limits on what they can achieve.
The future of YMF is big and I want to give mums all around Australia the opportunity to be a part of their own YMF community. Stay tuned for what’s on the cards in the near future.
In the meantime, if you live on the Gold Coast, join us at Upper Coomera or Reedy Creek.
